6:06 am
we have some patchy fog, in fact visibility down to three- quarters of a mile in santa rosa. but elsewhere partly cloudy skies making way for more sunshine this afternoon. 47 pacifica right now, 49 oakland and 44 in concord. as we head into the afternoon hours, warming things up mid- 50s to mid-70s depending where you are. 65 fairfield and concord. later this week, we're talking 80s. first let's start with today. breezy conditions this afternoon increasing clouds with a slight chance of showers to the north bay tuesday. but then drying out with more sunshine wednesday and thursday peaking near 80 for the warmest spots. then we start to cool heading into the weekend with another chance of showers on saturday. now a check of traffic with elizabeth. >> a traffic in fairfield. unfortunately in the commute direction. it is westbound 80 right around red top road. we think that one lane is blocked right now. we are in off the seeing any slowing yet as you make your way through there. we'll continue to follow that one. another accident, 101 approaching capitol expressway

6:12 am
where we're standing now on cashel circle. they evacuated the neighborhood, brought in the fbi, atf as well as bomb squads. they were searching to make sure there weren't any other hidden bombs in the neighborhood. finding none, they have at this point determined this to be an isolated incident. they are still searching for suspects and we don't have any suspect descriptions and as far as we know, no arrests have been made, frank and sydnie. so the investigation continues this morning into the bizarre and rather frightening incident. >> did anyone speak to the neighbor and ask him if his neighbor was taking his newspaper on a daily basis or a one-time deal? >> reporter: it certainly is something that i would like to ask him. frankly, i haven't had a chance to speak with him personally. yesterday he said he didn't know why he was doing it and whether it was a regular thing. at this point, you really have to wonder about that but we don't have anything definitive
6:13 am
to suggest one way or another whether it was something happening a lot or a one-time thing. >> all right. nick, thank you very much. nick janes in vacaville this morning. 6:13. an adoption scam targeting innocent parents. this morning, we're hearing from the california couple caught right in the middle of it all. plus, abercrombie slammed for a new product it's selling. the controversial items marketed to young girls. and traffic nice and light roy now at the bay bridge toll plaza. coming up, we'll update you on an accident in fairfield and check mass transit after the break. ,,,,,,,,,,,,

providers in bahrain, saudi arabia and kuwait. and sunnyvale-based blue coat systems has provided hardware and technology to bahrain and the united arab emirates according to the "wall street journal" which reports this morning that this censorship is blocking communication between anti-government activists. now we talked to our kcbs tech analyst larry magid about this. he says the makers of these web filtering products usually can't control how their customers are using them. >> i don't think that intel which owns mcafee or any of these other companies ever intended their technology to be used to keep political dissidents in line or to keep people from sharing their ideas with folks in other countries but the technology you can use to block the web can be used to block any type of site. >> reporter: we do have a call out to intel for comment on all of this. anti-censorship advocates say there needs to be some way for these companies to monitor how the products are being used and
6:39 am

welcome back to the "early edition." we have a sunny forecast for you today a little bit of a switch. take a look at that. not a cloud in the sky let alone rain this morning. we have some fog in the north bay, starting off beautiful for this monday. taking a look at your planner out the door this morning. as i mentioned, we are seeing some patchy fog especially in the north bay this morning inland locations so be mindful of that. clouds will clear, breezy this afternoon, northwest winds at 15 to 20 miles per hour later today. northwest is the key. that is a drying flow. part of the reason we'll see more sunshine and warmer temperatures and this my friends is just the beginning. high pressure building offshore and as it does it's going to push inland over the next few days bringing with it warmer temperatures and clear skies. before we get there, though, i
6:44 am
have to throw in this caveat. this little weathermaker in the pacific is going to skirt over the top of the ridge as it builds. tomorrow i think it will bring a few more clouds for most of us and the chance of a slight showers or slight chance of a shower for the north bay come tomorrow but short-lived because we do see more sunshine building in. in fact, these temperatures increasing by 15 degrees by thursday. 59 half moon bay. 62 los altos, 63 fremont and milpitas. east bay temperatures similar. 65 walnut creek, 64 antioch. north bay folks are starting out with low clouds and fog this morning but you will see sunshine later today. 64 petaluma, 60 san anselmo and 63 in vallejo. seven-day forecast shows increasing temperatures wednesday and thursday. friday we do start to cool down and saturday the next chance of showers. for a look at traffic, here's elizabeth. thank you, julie. first we want to take you
6:45 am
towards walnut creek. it southbound 680 right before the 24 interchange, it sounds like there is an accident there. we just got a call from jim with the expect who tells us that traffic is beginning to stack up to north main. at the bay bridge toll plaza, it's it sounds like that stalled tractor-trailer is still out there blocking the number 15 toll lane. so in our last traffic hit we saw a tow crew heading to the scene. minor delays behind it. the metering lights were turned on just after 6:30 but it still looks okay from the incline towards the "s" curve. and coming down the eastshore freeway not too bad of a drive either. bart dealing with slight delays as well just on the pittsburg- bay point bound line as well as the dublin-pleasanton-bound lines. five- to ten-minute delays. all bart lines head offing into san francisco on time.
6:46 am
